The second seminar in a series of four. The series is an exploration of the way we conceive of the natural environment, and what implications this has for practical decisions faced by the environmental movement.

This talk, given by David Pearce from the World Transhumanist Association, will argue that environmental action does not merely mean limiting humankind's damage to the planet, but that we can have a positive impact by manipulating nature to minimise suffering.
